Small Pool Swimmers – Update 1

We have just started the process for getting small pool groups C, D and E back into the water for the beginning of July.
We have sent emails to parents of all Tadpole C, D and E swimmers with details of next steps. If you haven’t received the email but think you should have, please check your junk folder and if it’s not there please contact Clare Noble at asap as deadlines are tight and spaces are limited.
We don’t as yet have a date for the return of Tadpole A and B swimmers.
Thank you
GDSC Management Team

Main Pool Swimmers – Update 3

We are on the final step towards swimmers returning to the main pool from 1st June.

Yesterday (May 10th) letters were posted out to all main pool swimmers who have paid their Swim England registration fees. The letter contains information about allocated swim sessions and fees to be paid along with a declaration form which needs signing and returning in the SAE.

We have also included information about our new club software – Club Organiser – which we will be using to manage members payments via direct debit. We will be sending emails with Club Organiser account activation details on Saturday 15th May. Once activated we need swimmers to set up a direct debit mandate through the Club Organiser account by 22nd May at the latest. This is a deadline that cannot be extended if a swimmer wishes to return at the beginning of June.

If you have any questions or difficulties with the direct debit set up please contact Julie Richardson:
mobile: 07541 063980

If you have any questions or difficulties accessing your Club Organiser account please contact Clare Noble:
